Subject: Well done!
Rarely do we see anything currently being created done so well. Yes, at times it is goofy. But not in such a way that will distract modern students from appreciating, enjoying and, above all, learning from the film. Its strength lies in showing how such two diametrically opposed men could both deeply care about the same thing in different ways and yet compromise and respect each other. A desperately needed lesson in the 114th Congress. I look forward to sharing this with my students.
